Kate grew up understanding the importance of a disciplined skincare routine. After a sudden health incident, she found out her beauty stash was not safe for her. Yearning for health more than anything, she embarked on a journey to create a natural beauty collection that was both clean and effective. While on a healing trip to Tibet, she fell in love with the humility of the people and the purity of the air and decided to incorporate this inspiration into her collection. Akar, an organic and luxury skincare was founded with an emphasis on mindfulness.
